GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) — A grand jury has found that a central Kentucky sheriff's deputy was "completely justified" in the fatal shooting of a suspect.

Scott County Sheriff Tony Hampton told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/196ajWN) that the panel reviewed the April 27 shooting in which Deputy Grayson Mark Isaacs killed suspect Ronald M. Davis of Berea. Police said the deputy, who is a 12-year veteran of the department, shot in self-defense.

Police said Davis led officers on a chase after a shooting at a service station in Lexington left a woman in serious condition. Investigators said when Davis' car was stopped, he aimed a handgun at officers and Isaacs fired.
